Whether you're eliminating typos or looking for a genre-savvy first reader, I've got you covered. Scroll down for a list of the services I offer.
I'll look for the little stuff throughout your manuscript that might trip up readers and knock them out of your story. This is a slow, very thorough read, where I check grammar, consistency and continuity, clarity, punctuation, syntax, and more. Typos included!
When your manuscript is almost ready to publish, I'll give it one last sweep to make sure there aren't any errors left over from earlier editing. This is another slow, thorough read, where I look at your book's formatting and layout just as much as I search for in-text errors.
I'll read through your manuscript with an editor's eye, identifying the parts that are working well along with the parts that aren't yet. I'll have an eye out for the big-picture things like character arcs, plot, setting and more, and in my report, I'll make some suggestions for future revisions.
I'll read through your manuscript as if I'd bought or borrowed it. As a member of your target audience, I'll comment my live reactions while reading and finish off with a report detailing my overall likes and dislikes. As an editor, I'll give you my quick opinion on your best next steps.
